Keeping Busy

Summer is winding down fast.  Already the temps are getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter.  I feel as if this summer has flown by and left me in its tailwind, and I’m left trying to figure out when it happened.

Granted, this has not been a ‘normal’ summer by any means.  But still, I felt like things were going great until… you know… that happened.

Every day I walk downstairs and see my bike, chained to the railing, just begging to be used.  I need to get out for a spin soon, before the weather gets too out of hand.

I’ve gained back all the weight I lost pre-that-which-happened, plus a little extra just for good measure.  Stress does these things to you.

But… there are good things to come of this summer.  Financially, I’m in better shape than I’ve been in probably 5 years.  And the new car is working out beautifully.  I have my health, which is going great; and the rest of my family and friends are doing well also. 

Plus I got my review at work and it was one of the best reviews I’ve ever had.  So that’s good.

Things are looking up.  I feel like the rest of this year will bring good things.  And in a year that’s had some really bad moments, that’s something to look forward to.

It’s just hard to shake this grey cloud over my head.  It follows me wherever I go and rains on me every now and then.  But as each day passes, it gets smaller and smaller.  And eventually it’s going to be gone.

When that day comes, you can bet, I’m gonna celebrate!
